opposition of the surge in iraq, when the party's nominee at the time, john mccain was running a presidential campaign counting the surge under george w. bush. the surge of course the troops going in to iraq, stepping up the troop presence there to try to get iraq under control. you'll remember then senator obama opposed the iraq surge as well. so, the republican party for the most part, many members believe that chuck hagel stepped away from the foreign policy element back then, and was very adamant. he was for the iraq war before he was against it and then was very vocal about being against the surge in iraq and that's really where some of that back and forth started. then you add on top of that some of the statements that he's being criticized for about israel, and iran, and hamas, and you have some growing concerns on the right from the republican party, and senator lindsey graham has articulated those numerous times. jon: the president managed to, well fracture i guess is a good word for it the republican opposition in the house over the fiscal cliff negotiations. he got some republicans
john mccain said that it's further scrutiny, especially what role he played in the so-called enhanced interrogation program. brennan's public statement appear inconsistent. in a seven interview he said the program saved lives. year later he denounced the c.i.a. interrogation. this week the white house emphasized the latter statement from 2008. >> he made clear that he opposed the so-called enhanceed interrogation technique. two, the past four years john brennan served as this president's chief counterterrorism advisor. >> supporters say it saved lives and it laid the foundation of mapping the al-qaeda structure. at the least, they may accelerate the declassification and release of the senate report. >> bret: thank you. >> thousand of venezuelaps rallied outside on what was supposed to be inauguration. but he's receiving treat in the cuba so it was postponed. unemployment in greece is up 7 points in the last year. young people between 15 and 24 years old there are looking at a 56.6% jobless rate. she claims to be of native american heritage so why won't she put it in writing? and could
with republicans. >> who does john mccain like today besides lindsey? anybody else? >> i don't think so. >> he doesn't like chuck hagel. >> let me disagree with something. this is not a change in policy. the president came in saying he would end the iraq war and the afghan war. he would get rid of the iraq war and take the afghanistan war and slow it down, basically downsize it. that's what he's been doing for the last four years despite the neocons screaming about it all the way. chuck hagel is a continuation on that. when he had to, he stared down petraeus.

of defense, the independent streak. interesting to watch john mccain. mccain part of the group of -- who embraced hagel. vietnam vets together they used to pal around with john kerry and max cleland and chuck rob, vietnam senators but differed in the past few years and there's tension there. mccain's the key person. for brennan, brennan has a weak spot he was pro-cia, waterboarding type of activities, mccain was opposed to that. mccain's in the spotlight the next week. >> talk about women. we've had three major appointments so far, three major suggestions at the moment. kerry, brennan and hagel. we know the treasury secretary's leaving. we haven't had somebody named but there are not a lot of women's names floating around, as potentials. why no more women in the cabinet? >> well, we're just losing two high-profile women in the obama administration, hillary clinton, but also lisa jackson at epa. it is -- seems to me the president's going to want to try to get in his last remaining appointments some women in play. susan rice can stay in at u.n. but you want to get a few more. you might see
